In a Nutshell

There's the season in a nutshell. The Yankees start a COMPLETELY overmatched and unprepared Matt DeSalvo and then turn over a winnable 3-0 game to Ron Villone who proceeds to shit the bed. I don't care how good Ron Villone was in his first 4 appearances this year for the Bombers, he's a bad pitcher. Always has been. Always will be. Case closed. There is nothing in the history of Ron Villone that could possibly support him as an effective Major League reliever. Nothing. Go ahead. Prove to me that he is worthy of an MLB job, or at least prove to me that the job he gets should be on a good team.

Bad pitcher. Bad. Awful. Disgraceful. Putrid. Hideous. Terrible. Ugly. Dog shit.

When Matsui hit his 2-run shot in the 8th the game was 7-0 thanks to Villone's 4-run vomit. Had we a real relief pitcher, or a starter that could hold down 6 decent innings, that 3-0 lead would have been made 3-2 and it would be competitive. It was not. It was a little breath of life in an all but dead corpse that is the Yankees' season.

Hello Mike,

I'm on break from Bronx Banter so I decided to come over here and wallow with you. It kills me that that these games seem insurmountable once the Yankees fall behind. The players can't seem to get on the same page at the same time. If it isn't the starter, it is the bullpen. Not enough players are hitting on offense. I think what the Yankees need is for the starters to pitch a couple complete games shut outs.

It is irrational, but I am still holding out hope that the Yankees have a shot at the wild card.
